1.15.1 Limitations on private practice
This rule prohibits private practice sessions on the circuits listed in the championship calendar after the conclusion of the year’s first weekend of racing, with the following exceptions:
a) one practice session within six days of the next race, on the circuit where it will be held, open to all riders;
b) practice sessions on any circuit after a championship race has been held there;
c) practice on the two test circuits designated by each team;
d) official practice sessions organised by FGSport with the approval of the FIM;
e) official practice for national championships organised by the national federations who license the rider in question.
This is the rule that led to the disqualification of Fabien Foret from the Monza race in 2005. The French rider had taken part in practice on the Monza circuit only a few days before the race.
